Rosie came to me after I lost my first BARC Rescue Belle. I was so sad after Belle went to the bridge. I was looking at the BARC website when I saw a female who was rescued with her sister. Her name was Lizzy. It was love at first sight. I made arrangements to foster Lizzy and drove to Indianapolis to meet Julie Greco and Lizzy. On my drive home I knew that Lizzy was not going anywhere and I adopted her. She was the typical puppy mill dog - scared and standoffish. That was March 22, 2008.

It was like the dog fairy tapped Lizzy, now Rosie, on the head; and she became a different dog. She is totally changed. Her tail never stops!! She is excited meeting new people. I once asked her what she wanted because she was nosing my arm and I am sure she said “I don’t know”. Rosie is a very happy and a changed girl from the one I saw that day in March.

She is always walking around with a toy in her mouth. The toys always wind up in my bed. At night, I have to remove 10 – 15 toys before I can get into bed. She is like a mother hen to our other two dogs and four cats. When you see our little Papillion mix, Sophia, there is Rosie right next to her – just like Mutt and Jeff!

She thinks she is a therapist when I come home from work she gets her head under my legs and raises and lowers my legs. We aren’t sure if she is working me out or cooling me down after a long day.

Rescue dogs make the best loveable pets.
